I am pleased to announce that version 8.3 of the CA API Gateway has officially been released.  This release contains the following new features and enhancements:


NEW Gateway Migration Utility (GMU)

Built on top of the existing REST-Management API, the GMU provides a fully featured command line migration functionality for the API Gateway.  The GMU provides the ability to securely migrate partial or complete Gateway policy environments with dependencies, map entities, and apply templates to policy bundles for use in migration scenarios.  The GMU exposes a fully featured command line interface that allows user to script or automate migration functions.


NEW Cassandra Assertion

The new Cassandra assertion allows users to read from or write to Cassandra data stores in their service policies.


JSON Web Token (JWT) Assertion

The JWT assertion is now available in the API Gateway.  It has also been enhanced to support JSON Web Encryption (JWE).


OAuth Toolkit Enhancements

OTK productivity and performance improvements are included with the API Gateway.
